Minimum wage through training then $8/hr.... definitely not worth it to be yelled & cussed at, but it's job when u don't have one!

my roommate worked at ACT the same time i did and hated it just as much, and now works at Sprint. Sprint pays waaaaaaay better, and you can change your schedule every couple of months if you don't like it. it's a very hard place to get into though, they don't take every shitbag off the streets who isn't too retarded up to hold a phone for a few hours, unlike ACT.

This is the worst place to work in.... they are racist and the manegers there are ass*****..... this job sucks so bad they require so much but they dont pay enough........ the managers only care of getting pay then to help their agents...... quality sucks they write you up for the stupidest crap.... no wonder they are always hiring...... and how in the hell will you finish your calls all in 7 min.... Act only want to finish in 7 min then to help their customers.... and they dont even care if you have a heart attack as long as you can keep working....

P.s they should shut the place down like they did in DE......

Already passed the test for Sprint, so that's in the bag. I just moved back to town and the whole male prostitution thing isn't working out as well as I had planned, so I gotta get some money rolling in.

Yeah the pay sucks but you can get 160.00 a Month just for showing up... They had made the bonus harder to get as well it seemed.. But if you can rank around 95% quality you can get up to another 250.00 monlthy.. But if you can get on at sprint for 12.00 a hr or AT&T for 9.00 or so..There's also citi in gray tn which isn't far from ACT but I dot know much about them...

Horrible, horrible place to work. They do everything they can to take away your self respect. The only way to survive is to kiss ass, literally. Oh u can also go around with your boobs hangin' out--they like that. Place is ran by fat woman and wimpy men. Its dirty, full of druggies, rude, rude people, they break into your car, damage it in the parking lots, steal your lunch. Its no place for a self respecting person and you won't find many there. Sups are mean, look years beyond their age, they get alot of bs too & u know that goes downhill. But it is a paycheck.......... Don't take the job home with you, look at it as a temp situation. When u walk out the door u hve to close your mind to the place. This job will NOT look good on your resume.

Friend of mine works there. They say act treats customers terribly and drugs are everywhere. No wonder bank of america (act big account) has so many lawsuits and complaints. My friend is looking for other work...

I've been working there a while now and love it. And, no, I'm not a druggie or anything like that. I just happen to like the department I'm in and the people I work with. Guess it helps that the work I'm doing is easy and that we're a small group...

Its a job and it pays the bills. No one forces you to do drugs or sleep with anyone. Its up to you to be on time. It may not be the greatest job folks but come on, we make your own personal choices...

I call BS. Sprint is actually a great place to work. I've been there several months now. Fair treatment, great starting pay, awesome benefits and just a good environment all around. There are SO many perks.. lots of different schedules to bid on, numerous ways to make sure your attendance stays where it should be - shift swaps (you can self swap with yourself) you can flex your shift twice a week, you get over 3 weeks of PTO a year.. if you can handle call center work, it's really a nice place to work. I won't lie - I have my days where I want to SCREAM! But hell, that's ANY job!
